Posted on October 30th, by Amy in podcast, Quiltcast. 2 comments

I did not have a chance to do the interviews I had hoped to at Quilt Market, but April has some exciting news to make up for that disappointment! We also chat about some of the Market details that you probably won’t hear elsewhere. Join us!

We chat about :

Schoolhouses

Book Signings

Booth Setup

Fabric 2.0

Sample Spree – great for the shop with a sample spree budget!

The show floor – huge and a great spot to absorb trends, and build relationships in the industry.

I outlined the “diamond” shapes with quilting, then added in random straight lines from the center to the edge. All the texture in there is so comfy! Here’s a closer look :
